Short but fun trip over the city. It was very hard to hear the pilot at times because of hearing problems. Really scheduled this for our adult grandchildren and they loved it. Provided an interesting view of the Lake and water alignment in the city, which would be difficult to see any other way

Amazing experience. Our Pilot Cameron made the ride smooth and relaxing and was very knowledgeable about New Orleans history throughout the flight. We did the $20 photo package and got some cool pictures with great poses in front of the helicopter as well as plenty of cell phone pics from the flight.

To: Mark & Zyria of Heli Co. The whole experience was exceptional!! Zyria's (Tour Coordinator) instructions on entry and safety protocol, was spot on! She was warm and inviting. Which is rare these days. Mark (the Pilot) maneuvered the Helicopter with ease and grace. The narrative given during the flight was informative, detailed with stories of the area, was absolutely superb! We will defiantly book another tour and recommend to our friends; Don't miss out on this fabulous tour!
